Defective regulation and/or reduced expression of the Na + ‐K + ‐2Cl − cotransporter NKCC1 may contribute to the severe secretory defect that is observed in cystic fibrosis, but data concerning the expression and function of NKCC1 in cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR)‐deficient cells are equivocal. Two isoforms, NKCC1 and NKCC2, are currently known and are encoded by different genes. Reduction of extracellular K+ concentration to 3 mM caused the cells to shrink back toward their original volume (Fig.3A). Exposure of cells to 5 mM ouabain in the presence of BaCl2 completely blocked cell swelling (Fig. Bumetanide inhibition of Ba2+-induced swelling indicates that K+ channels mediate, at least in part, efflux of K+ taken up by Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter (see results anddiscussion). Based on unidirectional flux measurements and assumptions of intracellular Na+and Cl− concentrations, Keep et al. Conversely, NKCC2B is expressed at the more superficial portion of the thick ascending limb and the macula densa, and it has the highest affinity for sodium. A key test of this model requires localization of the Ba2+-inhibitable K+ conductance. Presumably, K + enters these cells by active uptake through the cotransporter and the Na + , K + pump, and then exits across the luminal membrane of the cells through K + channels ( 11 , 12 ). In rat CP cells, the driving force on the cotransporter favors reabsorption of NaCl and KCl from CSF to cell by a factor of 2.7:1. Under normal conditions, K+ typically exits cells via K+ channels and/or the K+-Cl−cotransporter. Nielsen S., Smith B. L., Christensen E. I., Agre P. Distribution of the aquaporin CHIP in secretory and resorptive epithelia and capillary endothelia. E. Delpire is an Established Investigator of the American Heart Association. 454, No. NKCC2F is the isoform with the lowest affinity for sodium and this allows the cotransporter to work at this sodium rich environment. To further test for cotransporter function, we exposed CP cells to a bath solution with elevated extracellular K+ (Table 1). Xu J-C, Lytle C, Zhu TT, Payne JA, Benz EJ, Forbush BI (1994) Molecular cloning and functional expression of the bumetanide-sensitive Na-K-2Cl cotransporter. See complete history. To further examine the directionality of net solute uptake by the cotransporter, we used cell volume measurements to estimate intracellular Na+ and Cl− concentrations for calculation of the net cotransporter driving force. NKCC proteins are membrane transport proteins that transport sodium (Na), potassium (K), and chloride (Cl) ions across the cell membrane. Cell swelling indicates that K+ taken up into CP cells by other transport pathways exits via Ba2+-inhibitable K+ channels. The oligomeric state of the secretory Na + −K + −2Cl-cotransporter (NKCC1) in rat parotid plasma membranes was studied using the reversible chemical cross-linker DTSSP [3,3‘-dithiobis(sulfosuccinimidyl propionate)]. 1, 27 October 2006 | The Journal of Physiology, Vol. Cotransporter (NKCC) Physiological Function in Nonpolarized Cells and Transporting Epithelia, Water Homeostasis and Cell Volume Maintenance and Regulation, Transport across the choroid plexus epithelium, Fluid and ion transfer across the blood–brain and blood–cerebrospinal fluid barriers; a comparative account of mechanisms and roles, A patient with multisystem dysfunction carries a truncation mutation in human 5, No. 234, No. The cells were then washed with PBS and mounted using Vectashield mounting medium (Vector Laboratories, Burlingame, CA). The function of the apical Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter in mammalian choroid plexus (CP) is uncertain and controversial. Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 298:C85–C97 CrossRef PubMed Google Scholar 4B). Clearly, it is of major clinical importance to define the mechanisms and regulation of solute and fluid transport in the CP at the cellular and molecular level. Values are means ± SE (n = 6–13,2–6). Exposure of cells to 100 μM bumetanide (time 0) inhibits cotransporter and induces a rapid cell shrinkage. They enable cotransport (secondary active transport) and include antiporters and symporters. Data shown are from a single cell. The bumetanide-induced shrinkage indicates that the cotransporter in CP cells is constitutively active and functioning to move solute into the cell. Abstract. These investigators demonstrated that experimental changes in CSF K+concentration induced alterations in net K+ transport across the CP. If the Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter is constitutively active and moving K+ into the cell, then K+ must exit via other transport pathways for cell volume to remain stable. CSA of the traced regions were determined by image analysis software (Optimas, Bioscan, Edmonds, WA). Cells were exposed to Na+-free medium or 100 μM bumetanide for 4–6 min before elevation of extracellular K+ to 25 mM (time 0). Function. METHODS. 20, 21 November 2006 | Pflügers Archiv - European Journal of Physiology, Vol. In CP cells, unlike most epithelia, the Na+-K+-ATPase is located on the apical membrane, facing the CSF (22). Functions of the apical Na + /K + /2Cl-Cotransporter 1 in choroid plexus epithelial cells. The bath chamber was perfused continuously at room temperature with experimental solutions gassed with 5% CO2-95% air. However, during brain injury, extracellular K+ levels rise, which in turn can alter neural activity and lead to cell swelling and further injury (21, 23, 36). The direction of the driving force for the cotransporter is dependent on the ratio of the extracellular and intracellular concentrations of Na+, K+, and Cl−. Each one of these isoforms is expressed at different portions of the thick ascending limb and they have different affinity for sodium that correlates with its localization. Delpire E., Rauchman M. I., Beier D. R., Hebert S. C., Gullans S. R. Molecular cloning and chromosome localization of a putative basolateral Na-K-2Cl cotransporter from mouse inner medullary collecting duct (mIMCD-3) cells. Cells were visualized using a Nikon Eclipse E800 microscope equipped with a Nikon Plan Apo ×100 objective lens [1.4 numerical aperture (NA)] and an Optronics DEI-750 color charge-coupled device (CCD) camera (Optronics Engineering, Goleta, CA). 4, 1 July 1999 | American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, Vol. In the present study, we show that aldosterone regulates cotransporter activity within 13–22 min of exposure. Regulation of cerebrospinal fluid potassium by the cat choroid plexus. 1609, No. Loop of Henle functions (Na-K-Cl cotransporter, NKCC, Loop diuretics) ... Thorne T (June 1999). Cells were fixed, treated with antibodies to various transport proteins, and then imaged by differential interference contrast (DIC; left), fluorescence (middle), or combined DIC-fluorescence microscopy (right). Choroid plexus potassium cotransport: modulation by osmotic stress and external potassium. This outward movement of sodium and the lack of water permeability in the thick ascending limb, creates a more diluted urine. (20) postulated that the cotransporter operates in a secretory mode, transporting Na+, K+, and Cl− from the cytoplasm to the CSF. Cotransporter activity was measured using NH4+ as a K+ surrogate and following cotransporter‐mediated NH4+ fluxes by monitoring intracellular pH. It may be possible to assess the role of a K+-Cl−cotransporter in CSF formation using isolated, polarized CP cells and optical techniques. Intracranial hypertension is a serious and life-threatening consequence of traumatic brain injury and a variety of disease states. In many cells, NKCC1 accumulates Cl − above its electrochemical potential equilibrium, thereby facilitating Cl − channel‐mediated membrane depolarization. This shrinkage is due to inhibition of NaCl and KCl reabsorption through the cotransporter in the presence of continued solute and osmotically obliged water loss from the cell via other transport pathways. Thus it is conceivable that the cotransporter could operate in the reverse direction in vivo under certain physiological conditions. Isolated CP were washed with Hanks’ balanced salt solution (HBSS) and then treated with 1 mg/ml collagenase IV (Sigma Chemical, St. Louis, MO) and 1 mg/ml protease XIV (Sigma) in HBSS for 60 min at room temperature. At the apical membrane, Na+ is extruded into the CSF via the Na+-K+-ATPase. Effect of DEX on the expression of Na + /K +-ATPase, Na + /K + /2Cl – cotransporter (NKCC) and Na + /H + exchanger-1 (NHE-1) in pavement cells (PVCs) in culture. Its basolateral location gives NKCC1 the ability to transport sodium, potassium, and chloride from the blood into the cell. Cl− transport into the CSF is thought to be mediated in part by an apical anion channel (6, 7,10). For clarity, initial relative volume of these 2 groups of cells was normalized and plotted as 1.0 attime 0. Alterations in the rate of pump turnover as a primary response to changes in CSF K+ concentration would therefore likely alter the rate of CSF secretion. Bilateral ureteral obstruction (BUO) is associated with polyuria and reduced urinary concentrating capacity. [14] In this way, NKCC2 is able to function properly along the range of sodium concentrations found along the thick ascending limb. + 102, No. -K NKCC1 is widely distributed throughout the body, especially in organs that secrete fluids, called exocrine glands. SLC12A2 1, 26 June 2008 | Pharmaceutical Research, Vol. 8, 21 January 2011 | Journal of Comparative Physiology A, Vol. (20) concluded that the ion gradients favored reverse operation of the cotransporter. This work was supported by National Institutes of Health Grants NS-30591 (to K. Strange), HL-49251 (to E. Delpire), and DK-36803 (to S. C. Hebert). Renal damage due to urinary tract obstruction accounts for up to 30% of acute kidney injury in paediatrics and adults. The pH and gas content of the aCSF in which the cells were suspended was kept constant by continuously blowing a stream of 5% CO2-95% air over the surface of the medium. Both these experimental manipulations induced cell shrinkage (see Fig. 5.Model of Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter function in CP epithelial cells. This hypothesis is supported by studies of the regulation of CSF K+ concentration in cat CP carried out by Husted and Reed (11). Values are means ± SE (n = 20,6). Na + ‐K + ‐2Cl − cotransport is driven by the chemical gradient of the three ionic species across the membrane, two of them maintained by the action of the Na + /K + pump. In many cells, NKCC1 accumulates Cl - above its electrochemical potential equilibrium, thereby facilitating Cl - channel-mediated membrane depolarization. Data shown are from a single cell. Background Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) rats are characterized by enhanced NaCl reabsorption in the loop of Henle, but the responsible ion transport protein is unknown. 52, Nature Reviews Neuroscience, Vol. Johanson C. E., Swenney S. M., Parmelee J. T., Epstein M. H. Cotransport of sodium and chloride by the adult mammalian choroid plexus. We conclude that the CP cotransporter is constitutively active and propose that it functions in series with Ba2+-sensitive K+ channels to reabsorb K+ from cerebrospinal fluid to blood. Furosemide and other loop diuretics inhibit the activity of NKCC2, thereby impairing sodium reabsorption in the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle. 2, exposure of CP cells to 100 μM bumetanide induces a rapid cell shrinkage. Hung B. C. P., Loo D. D. F., Wright E. M. Regulation of mouse choroid plexus apical Cl. Intracellular chloride levels in the brain are regulated primarily through the opposing effects of two cation-chloride co-transporters (CCCs), namely K+-Cl− co-transporter-2 (KC Cells that were obviously swollen and cells that had blebbing membranes, intracellular vacuoles, or disrupted microvilli were discarded. Fig. The isoform F is more predominant in the deeper portion of the thick ascending limb, where the sodium concentration is very high. One of the most important functions of CP cells is secretion of the CSF and control of its ionic composition. The sodium-potassium-chloride cotransporter isoform 2 is kidney-specific and is found on the apical membrane of the thick ascending limb of Henle′s loop and the macula densa. aCSF, artificial cerebrospinal fluid. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the activity profile of NKCC1 in isolated rabbit LG duct segments. Briefly, cells were attached to the poly-l-lysine-coated coverslip bottom of a bath chamber (model R-26G, Warner Instrument, Hamden, CT) that was mounted onto the stage of a Nikon TE 300 inverted microscope. 92, No. Application of 100 μM bumetanide caused CP cells to shrink rapidly. The method for isolating single, polarized CP cells was similar to that described by Torres et al. An understanding of the precise mechanisms and regulation of CSF secretion therefore has significant clinical importance. For clarity, initial relative volume of these 2 groups of cells was normalized and plotted as 1.0 attime 0. Two isoforms of the NKCC1/Slc12a2 gene result from keeping (isoform 1) or skipping (isoform 2) exon 21 in the final gene product.[2]. 12, Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Biomembranes, Vol. [6] This change in NKCC1 presence seems to be responsible for altering responses to the neurotransmitters GABA and glycine from excitatory to inhibitory, which was suggested to be important for early neuronal development. – Apical microvilli and basolateral pole are readily discernible in cells imaged by DIC microscopy (left). Both these experimental manipulations induced cell shrinkage (see Fig. Since NKCC proteins use sodium's gradient, their activity is indirectly dependent on ATP; for this reason, NKCC proteins are said to move solutes by way of secondary active transport. As urine moves towards the more superficial portion of the thick ascending limb, NKCC2 is the major transport protein by which sodium is reabsorbed from the urine. Cells were exposed to 5 mM BaCl2, 5 mM BaCl2 + 100 μM bumetanide, or 5 mM BaCl2 + 5 mM ouabain attime 0. 4.Ba2+-inhibitable K+ channels mediate efflux of K+ taken up into CP cells by cotransporter. 4, Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery, Vol. Thus increases in extracellular K+ concentration will almost certainly have little direct effect on the rate of pump transport. 291, No. 4.Ba2+-inhibitable K+ channels mediate efflux of K+ taken up into CP cells by cotransporter. SLC12A1 is kidney specific and is essential in the regulation of ionic balance and cell volume. Removal of BaCl2 caused the cells to shrink back toward their original volume (Fig.4A). Video-enhanced differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy (33) was used to measure relative volume changes in isolated, polarized CP cells. Alteration of sodium transport by the choroid plexus with amiloride. NKCC2 is specifically found in cells of the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle and the macula densa in nephrons, the basic functional units of the kidney. 57, No. Data shown were obtained from a single cell.B: K+-induced swelling is inhibited completely by 100 μM bumetanide (bumet) or by replacement of extracellular Na+ withN-methyl-d-glucamine. [5], NKCC1 is also expressed in many regions of the brain during early development, but not in adulthood. We propose that the cotransporter provides a mechanism for dissociating the critical functions of CSF secretion and K+ reabsorption/buffering. Intracranial hypertension and cerebral edema are common and very serious clinical problems. 1 . The Na+-K+-ATPase also mediates K+ reabsorption from the CSF, which raises the question of what additional role the cotransporter plays. We assessed the role of channels in K+ efflux by exposing CP cells to 5 mM BaCl2, a selective K+ channel blocker. Since Na +-K +-2Cl-cotransport (NKCC) was first described almost three decades ago (Wiley and Cooper 1974; Geck et al. 576, No. 2.Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter in CP is constitutively active and functions to reabsorb Na+, K+, and Cl− from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). 291, No. , the gene encoding the Na-K-2Cl cotransporter, NKCC1, Cerebrospinal fluid hypersecretion in pediatric hydrocephalus, Fundamentals of Bicarbonate Secretion in Epithelia, Therapeutic implications of the choroid plexus–cerebrospinal fluid interface in neuropsychiatric disorders, Expression of tight junction proteins and transporters for xenobiotic metabolism at the blood–CSF barrier during development in the nonhuman primate (P. hamadryas), NKCCs in the fibrocytes of the spiral ligament are silent on the unidirectional K+ transport that controls the electrochemical properties in the mammalian cochlea, Bumetanide-induced NKCC1 inhibition attenuates oxygen–glucose deprivation-induced decrease in proliferative activity and cell cycle progression arrest in cultured OPCs via p-38 MAPKs, Disruption of Ion Homeostasis in the Neurogliovascular Unit Underlies the Pathogenesis of Ischemic Cerebral Edema, Physiology and pathophysiology of SLC12A1/2 transporters, Cerebrospinal Fluid Secretion by the Choroid Plexus, Aquaporin-4 in glioma and metastatic tissues harboring 5-aminolevulinic acid-induced porphyrin fluorescence, Curcumin Downregulates Aquaporin-1 Expression in Cultured Rat Choroid Plexus Cells, Molecular Physiology of SPAK and OSR1: Two Ste20-Related Protein Kinases Regulating Ion Transport, Molecular and functional expression of cation-chloride cotransporters in dorsal root ganglion neurons during postnatal maturation, Cerebrospinal fluid and lumbar puncture: a practical review, The Role of Na+/Ca2+ Countertransport and Other Na+-Entry Routes in the Pathophysiology of Stroke, Mechanisms of chloride uptake in frog olfactory receptor neurons, The Blood–Cerebrospinal Fluid Barrier: Structure and Functional Significance, Altered electrolyte handling of the choroid plexus in rats with glycerol-induced acute renal failure, Molecular determinants of hyperosmotically activated NKCC1-mediated K The function of the Na +:K +:2Cl − cotransporter was not affected by extracellular pH or by the addition of metolazone, 4,4′-diisothiocyanatostilbene-2,2′-disulfonic acid (DIDS), orR(+)-[(2-n-butyl-6,7-dichloro-2-cyclopentyl-2,3-dihydro-1-oxo-1-H-indenyl-5-yl)-oxy]acetic acid (DIOA) to the extracellular medium. 25, No. 3, 1 April 2005 | Physiological Reviews, Vol. 1996), we demonstrated that this cotransporter was highly expressed in DRG neurons (Plotkinetal.1997a).Then,wedemonstratedthatabsence of the cotransporter in DRG neurons from NKCC1 Bumetanide inhibition of Ba2+-induced swelling indicates that K+ channels mediate, at least in part, efflux of K+ taken up by Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter (see results anddiscussion). Stable transfectants expressing these human splice variants, designated NKCC1a or NKCC1b, were constructed. Potassium efflux from infant and adult rat choroid plexuses: effects of CSF anion substitution. 3 and 4 indicate that K+channels mediate the efflux from CP cells of K+ taken up by the Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter and the Na+-K+-ATPase. 13, No. In rat CP, we estimated intracellular Na+and Cl− concentrations using cell volume measurements. Figure1 demonstrates clearly that CP cells behave in a similar fashion. The bumetanide-sensitive Na +:K +:2Cl − cotransporter is the major salt transport pathway in the apical membrane of the mammalian thick ascending limb of Henle's loop (TALH). The NKCC2 protein is essential for normal kidney function. -K 5.Model of Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter function in CP epithelial cells. 197, No. 282, No. However, there is a notable exception in squid giant axonas the s… It is possible that the driving force on the cotransporter in the intact CP is different from that in isolated cells. Interpretation of these discrepant findings is obscured by a variety of significant methodological concerns (12, 17). 4, 21 August 2018 | Journal of Cellular Physiology, Vol. In the present investigation, we demonstrate that the Na +-K +-2Cl − cotransporter is constitutively active, that it functions to reabsorb NaCl and KCl from the CSF, and that it is the major pathway for concentration gradient-driven K + uptake in the CP. NKCC1 is widely distributed throughout the human body; it has important functions in organs that secrete fluids. 93, No. The function of the Na(+):K(+):2Cl(-) cotransporter was not affected by extracellular pH or by the addition of metolazone, 4,4'-diisothiocyanatostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (DIDS), or R(+)-[(2-n-butyl-6,7-dichloro-2-cyclopentyl-2,3-dihydro-1-oxo-1-H-indenyl-5-yl)-oxy]acetic acid (DIOA) to the extracellular medium. A number of studies have implicated the Na+-K+-2Cl−cotransporter as having an important role in the secretion and regulation of CSF ionic composition, but the precise function of the cotransporter is uncertain and controversial. 7, 22 November 2013 | Translational Stroke Research, Vol. The cells were exposed to 0.5–2 μmol l –1 DEX for 24 h. (A) Cell lysates were collected for western blot analysis and (B) the amounts of the respective ion transporter proteins were quantified.
